Fox 13 reported:
Vicky White, the Alabama corrections officer who scandalized the country by allegedly walking a murder suspect and convicted felon out of the Lauderdale County Jail last month, has died. She was 56.
Facing arrest, she shot herself in the head, according to Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding, whose deputies assisted the Marshals in the chase. She was hospitalized in serious condition and succumbed to her wounds Monday evening.
“The Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office, the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service are investigating the death of Vicky White, fugitive from Alabama,” Vanderburgh Coroner Steve Lockyear said Monday evening.
She died just after 7 p.m. CT at Deaconess Hospital, he said. An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday.
